Why Are the Visual Studio C++ 6.0 Executable Files So Big?

P: n/a
I usually compile my .CPP programs with
Visual Studio C++ 6.0 and MFC.
Why is the produced executable file so big?
For example, the original file is 1k and the executable is 500K.
Am I doing osmething wrong?
Thank you!

There is nothing in the C++ language standard that defines how large
executables should be. All such detail is completely dependent on the
compiler and operating system. You need to ask in a Windows or Visual
C++ programming group, it is not a language issue.
